During my visit to Japan in April of 1998, I showed the evidential materials
of my effort listed in the following Section 3.5 to high echelons of the
Japanese Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications and other Japanese. They
simply amazed and exclaimed "Why did we do such foolish things!!"
As mentioned elsewhere, this shows that the so-called "MIND CHANGE"
is very difficult, particularly in feudalistic society and bureaucratic
government of Japan, and hence, any new technology takes two to three decades
to become proliferated.
